As the seasons change, I start craving a hot-spiced cider instead of a popsicle and a cozy sweater instead of a pair of shorts.
One thing that doesn’t change, though, is the craving for my next good book to read.
Do you ever wonder what to read while you’re waiting for that latest hot title you’re on the hold list for?
Well, have you heard of Multnomah County Library’s Lucky Day collection? That is a special collection that includes books for adults, teens and kids. The books are available for you to browse and check out on a first-come, first-served basis. They cannot be put on hold. You can have two Lucky Day books checked out at one time, for three weeks.
New shipments of books arrive every other week, ready for you to come in and check out. It’s a great way to try and get that new book or browse for new ideas. Lucky Day books have a bright orange label on the spine, making them easy to spot.
Ask any staff member at Hollywood Library where the Lucky Day shelves are.
You can even see which books are the latest arrivals by visiting the new Lucky Day Blog on our website. To find the blog, just enter “Lucky Day” in the search box on the library’s website (https://multcolib.org), then look for the “blog post” label and the most recent date in your search results. There you will find the list of our newest fiction and nonfiction Lucky Day arrivals.
So come on in to your neighborhood library – it just might be your lucky day!
